I broke down while at Wal-Mart last night. Went to look at the Bettas, mainly to check and see if they were still keeping up with upkeep since my letter. They weren't.
I know I said I would never buy from them again but I just couldn't resist this boy. He was the healthiest one there, all the other ones looked about dead or they had bloat.
He doesn't have a name yet but I'm open to suggestions!
These two are the originals, linked for size.
I know that he isn't a Mustard Gas because his fins are more pink than yellow/orange. When not taking pictures his body looks almost completely black.
